The Internet? to an extent, political correctness? I agree.

There was this game released back in 2001 called Metal Gear Solid 2 that accurately describes our society today.

I applaud that mother. Her job is to protect him and correct him when he's wrong--and that's what she's trying to do.

I'm a firm believer of not sparing the rod.

I agree that some people are too PC for their own good, but it sounds like some people just want to be racist without being called out on it. :\

I see nothing stupid about the comment. If she were beating a dog like this people would be in an uproar.

Really..nothing stupid about the fact that even great parents can have a child do pretty awful things?

Nothing stupid about lying about saying that "family services is looking for her"?

Nothing stupid about claiming she will be arrested for this? There is no law against slapping your kid.

And I think this is a stupid remark too: "if she were beating a dog like this people would be in an uproar" In the first place she wasn't beating the kid, and in the second place people do all sorts of things to their dogs, , rub their nose in poop, drag them around on choke collars and use shock collars on them and I don't see much of an uproar over any of that all of which are far more punitive and coercive than slapping a teenager.

What exactly is your definition of beating then? Rubbing dogs' noses in poop, using shock collars. You really need to consider moving to a new neighborhood!!

As for the second part: I'm primarily seeing blacks living in urban settings making the education point, which, as I described above, is a fair point to make. But, on the flip side, why in the heck are these individuals still overwhelmingly supporting a political party with single party rule over these urban centers? A party that continues to block educational choice and reform because they are in bed with teacher's unions that are threatened by such reform efforts? The level of ignorance and stupidity I'm seeing is astounding. Don't keep doing the same thing over and over and expect different results.
To paraphrase: I'm primarily seeing whites living in rural settings making the education point, to dismantle public education all together. These individuals overwhelmingly supporting a political party that against improving the education quality in urban centers? A party that continues to advance only private or charter school as a alternative. Maybe because they are in bed with private educational enterprise that would benefit financially from the ending of public education and teacher's union? Your level of ignorance and stupidity is astounding. .

If all the parents of those little "thugs" had done what she did (yes, they were definitely acting "thuggish") I'd be will to wager there'd have been way,way less trouble last night.

I applaud her for seeing Her son on television, keeping her word to him (if she saw him she was going to drag him home).
